The WMG2017 Corporate Challenge is a chance of a lifetime for your company and it’s employees to be part of the largest multi-sport event in the world and the biggest event to be hosted in New Zealand this decade.

The minimum age for most sports starts at 30-35 and there’s no upper age limit; and the Games are open to participants regardless of ability – you will be placed in your appropriate level i.e social or competitive. Why not try lawn bowls or dragon boating?

Not only do you get bragging rights!! But the Corporate Challenge will give your team members the opportunity to be part of an Olympic-like experience, participate with peers, create some healthy competition and promote overall health and wellbeing; then think of the stories you can share, whether it’s internally, with your customers, on company social channels or just spoken around the water cooler.

For every company that sign’s up, we’ll give you one bronze supporter package for free (worth $145)

So, we jumped at the chance to take part in the WMG2017 Corporate Challenge, as it allows us to promote wellness and foster teamwork among our people, while getting behind Auckland and the Waikato staging the world’s largest multi-sport event. We’re looking forward to celebrating our athletes and creating some healthy competition that is not only good for our business, but great for NZ business and therefore the nation as a whole.
